Ice Breaker:  The venue has changed as we found a great place for our group.  It will now be in the old Post Office building on Church Street.  Ill Eagle has lots of options for beer and should make for a fine place to meet up with old (we are 70 or almost anyway) friends.  

Saturday evening dinner:  Social hour hors' d'oeuvres of crackers & cheese, veggies & dip.  Main dinner will include salad & rolls and have a carving station with pork loin and turkey breast, pasta station with bowtie/penne and marinara or alfredo sauces plus mini meatballs, shrimp, roasted mushrooms, and vegetables. A vegetable station will include carrots, cauliflower, broccoli and a medley.  Coffee and tea will be available as well. Business casual attire requested (no cutoffs/tshirts) 

Sunday Brunch:  Bill has promised us a great brunch as he always does. It will include:  fruit and cheese tray, French toast casserole, quiche lorräine/ham & cheese, vegetable friatata, chicken salad, and rolls.  Coffee, orange juice and mimosa's will be available for drinks.  




  1. If you closed an email account and no longer have access to it, you'll miss announcements from this web site.  It will also be confusing as to why you can't log in.  Keep in mind if you are changing email addresses also update your profile on this web site. Until you do, the old email address will work as your login ID.  Of course if you've forgotten your password, I can also change it so you can regain access.  I can't see your password but I can change it so you can log in and then you'll be required to change it to something new. 
  2. If you have knowledge of any of our classmates that have passed, please share that information with Cherie.  She updates that section of the web site and any information you have especially the obituary is much appreciated. 
  3. And a big welcome to all the classmates that have recently found this site and logged in.  For those that use Facebook, the Class of '70 also has a Facebook page.  Search Facebook for "Elmira Southside 1970" and you'll find it.  If you like Facebook, it's a great place to connect with old friends and see what's happening with them.

Just five weeks to go! If you're considering attending our reunion but haven't registered yet, please do it today. We have to provide a firm number of attendees prior to the event, which means we will not be able to accommodate walk-ins the evening of the reunion. Look, none of us are getting any younger so don't miss this opportunity to reconnect with your classmates! Also consider signing up for the icebreaker on Friday night, (it's a free event) as well as the Sunday brunch ($25). The brunch is fabulous as anyone who attended the last one would attest.
We're working hard to make this our best reunion ever, please join us in the celebration!
